Megan Leavey is the incredible true story of a Marine and her military combat dog, Rex. After a disciplinary hearing, Leavey is assigned to clean the kennels of the K9 unit. Megan immediately bonds with an aggressive dog and allowed an opportunity to train him. Once through with training, Megan and Rex are deployed to Iraq twice and go on to complete over 100 missions, until an IED explosion injures them both. Leavey is sent home and awarded the Purple Heart, while Rex continues his duty sniffing out bombs. In 2012, when Rex develops facial palsy and can no longer fulfill his duties, Megan seeks out the help of Senator Chuck Schumer to help her adopt him and bring him home.
